I might be missing the point, but couldn't you just buy a standard ferrite core and saw a gap in it?

If you want to use a gapped ferrite core, then better to buy such core that you don't need to saw. There are plenty of them.

I suggested this already in the other thread but it fits better here.

The Wurth coils are the best coils I tried so far for my system with the Shure 2x100 amps.
They are better than 10uH air cores that I took out of my Charlize and
many others that I bought and wound.
For the price you should at least try them in your system.
They do equally well with my full Horn-system, KRK monitors or Fonken.

Greets,
Klaus

Default Ordered

Thanks for the tip Klaus. As you have found the output coil is the key that can unlock the superiority of class D. I ordered the Wurths that you like from Digikey and will report at the Sure 2X100 thread here.

How to install a Wurth coils on a board that uses the toroids?
The Wurths XXL are SMD while the toroids are soldered "through-board".
Is it possible to install the Wurth coils raised up a little with rheophores?
Any drawbacks of this solution?
Thanks, bye!

I am listening with an AM radio tuned between stations to the switching frequency. Turn your amp on and off and listen to the difference.
Once a board is installed in a metal case, isn't that shielded? So the emi pollutions shouldn't be anymore a problem. What do you think about?

Yes the Wurth XXL coils are my favorite as the sonics are very close to an air core with some advantages of much smaller size and less EMI. Much better sound than the undersized type 2 cores that everyone uses. More loss than the air cores though so battery users will find less run time. Just add some solid core wires to the Wurth coils and fit them down to the board as best as possible.

IMO, the properties of a high perm ferrite with a gap are different than a lower perm ferrite unless you really get lucky. I do some work with high Q resonant inductors (non-audio) and nothing can beat the gapped ferrite for maintaining the Q under power.

Sawing a gap is easier than one might think. I use a thin copper or brass wheel with some silicon carbide grit slurry in a dish on the bottom, and the part gravity fed from the top. There are also inexpensive diamond saws if you want to go that route. Check the lapidary supply places. If you're paying more than $10 for a nice 4" diamond saw, you haven't found the right place.
